Television is the largest application segment of the optical film market, in terms of value and volume.

The major applications in the optical film market include television, smartphones & tablets, desktop monitors & laptops, signage/large format display, and automotive display. The television application segment accounted for a major share of the market, in terms of value and volume, in 2018. High acceptance of optical film in the LED and LCD is the key reason for the high consumption of optical film in the television application. This growth is driven by the increase in the screen size of LCD and OLED displays of televisions. A number of consumer electronics industry leaders produce LCD television in varying sizes and configurations due to the increase in demand for larger television units among end users, which, in turn, support the growth of the optical film market.

The polarizing film segment holds a major share, in terms of value, in the optical film market.

The polarizing film segment dominates the overall optical film market, in terms of value, as it is widely applicable in both LCD and OLED displays for various applications. Polarizing film converts non-polarized light into linearly polarized light by transmitting only the incident beam that propagates in one direction and absorbing all other beams. Recognizing letters and graphics without the polarizers would be impossible. A polarizing film is one of the core elements of the LCD and OLED technologies that enables display of images on LCD and OLED screen.
